Local Alert Weather – Wed. PM


Happy Wednesday evening, everyone!

Mostly clear skies will be overhead tonight as we’re in between weather systems. Lows will be very cold with calm winds. Thursday will start with temperatures in the single digits and teens. Bundle up tonight and tomorrow morning! Spots of ice will linger on roads and surfaces.

Thursday sees increasing clouds as an area of low pressure moves to our south. We’ll see clouds out of this at first with chances for snow showers developing by Friday. Daytime highs on Thursday will be in the low to mid 30s, which is slightly warmer than we were for today, and about 10 degrees below normal for this time of year. Winds will be light out of the southeast around 5 miles per hour.

By Friday we’ll see the chance for snow showers across Central Oregon. Higher elevations and the Cascades will wake up to some snow Friday morning. Snow levels start around 1,500′ for the High Desert and will stay low throughout the day. Our best chance for snow showers will be the second half of the day Friday.

Prepare for winter driving conditions across the mountain passes if you’re heading out this weekend. We’ll also see snowy roads and spots of ice on the High Desert. Accumulations in Central Oregon over the weekend look to be about 1-3″. The Cascades and ski areas during the weekend will pick up more than a foot of new snow and could pick up two feet.

Temperatures fall into the mid to upper 20s by Sunday with the arrival of another area of low pressure from the north. We’ll also see a chance for snow showers.
